2nd Grade Spelling Throughout the Year
Students enjoy the mixture of real words, nonsense words, sight words, and sentence dictation. If you are looking for a new spelling sequence that is based on the Orton-Gillingham method this is a great set. The sight words (red words) are largely selected from Dolch Word lists. The sequence is roughly based on "Recipe for Reading," but NOT exactly aligned.
*Spelling tests include some words provided on the study sheet as well as some new words that match the weekly concept to truly assess understanding of the skill. Tests include isolated spelling practice as well as spelling in context through dictation.

*I do not claim affiliation with Orton-Gillingham. I have simply created a spelling curriculum that focuses on the Orton-Gillingham methods but meets the needs of general 1st graders. While inspired by it, the sequence of units do not strictly follow "Recipe for Reading."
